Colours Boat Races
The Colours Boat Races are an annual event on the River Liffey echoing the world famous Oxford/Cambridge University Boat Race in London. It has taken place in various locations on the river throughout the years and is currently raced from O’Connell Bridge to St. James’s Gate Brewery.
The Senior Mens race, the Gannon Cup, was founded in 1947 in memory of former UCD Captain Ciaran Gannon who lost his life in Burma in 1944.
In 1980 Trinity were presented with the Corcoran Cup as winners of the inaugural Senior Womens race.

As 2019 draws to a close it’s a chance to look back over the last decade and we have to say we are incredibly proud of what UCD Boat Club and UCD Ladies Boat Club have achieved.
UCD rowers have made their mark at home and abroad, from beginner to Olympian, and the clubs are in fantastic shape to build again in 2020 and beyond.
All credit to the athletes, coaches and committees that contributed to these successes and of course none of this would be possible without the support we receive so a huge thank you to our alumni, Old Collegians Boat Club, Ireland., UCD Sport, sponsors MERC Partners Spencer Stuart, KPMG Careers Ireland and Bank of Ireland, parents, friends, family and everyone who has helped the club and its members on their way during an exciting decade.
We’d like to wish you all the best for the new year and we’re already looking forward to what the Roaring Twenties hold #HonCollege ... See MoreSee Less
